During his trial at Southwark Crown Court, Lilian, who is believed to have been in a relationship with Becker for about three years, supported her partner alongside his son Noah.
Lillian, who was born in the African island state of São Tomé and Príncipe, is said to have waved her goodbye as he was ushered out of court after his conviction.
Since Becker’s conviction, his girlfriend has been visiting him at HMP Wandsworth, where he is being held.
In early May, shortly after starting his stint, Carvalho Monteiro was seen getting out of a car outside the prison in a denim jacket, white T-shirt and black jeans.
She appeared today with Noah, whose mother is Barbara Becker, for the first time since they supported Becker through the trial, wearing a white vest and sunglasses, and her hair was pulled into a relaxed ponytail.
Noah sat next to her in sunglasses, a blue shirt and tweed jacket as they cheered on Novak Djokovic as they beat Korean player Kwon Soon-woo in straight sets.
The couple, who have reportedly been together for three years, formed a united front as they attended Becker’s sentencing in April.

After Becker was jailed, Djokovic said he was “heartbroken” for his former coach.
Speaking at a press conference ahead of the Madrid Open, he said: “He is a friend, an old friend, a coach for three, four years, someone I consider close in my life and who has contributed a lot to my success in my life. career.
“I will not go into the details of the verdict as I am not in a position to do so, but as his friend I feel very sorry for him. It’s not much you can say.’
Noah appeared at a red carpet event in Germany earlier this month with his mother Barbara.
The couple smiled for the cameras, but did not give interviews at the premiere of a new TV channel.
